Zach Zamboni

Director of Photography

Through 10,000 hours on location, 60 countries, 120 episodes of primetime television, 3 Primetime Emmy Awards, and 7 nominations in Nonfiction Cinematography – Zach has consistently delivered top-tier camera work and built a reputation for making documentaries look like single-camera fiction.

Known as one of America’s top nonfiction DoP’s, Zach has made the cross-over into fiction and commercial work.  His doc skills bring intimacy, powerful images, and speed to scripted work. Vast on-location experience made him expert in blocking and dramatic lighting for multiple angles.  A mastery of hand-held work, attentiveness, and a great eye have made him an exceptional camera operator.

Raised in Maine, Zach studied Philosophy, Writing, and Cinematography at The University of Maine, University of East Anglia UK, and The Maine Media Workshops.  Lighting before operating, he began as grip and electrician in NYC’s independent film and commercial world, working his way up to Gaffer.

Zach is a member of the International Cinematographer’s Guild, Local 600, and is listed on the (IER) Industry Experience Roster. With a home base in the EU and the United States, Zach works worldwide.
